Lemon Chip Muffins

The mellow flavor of these chocolate chip muffins is enhanced by sweet lemony topping. They're just right for a ladies' luncheon.

    Excellent and super easy! I prefer them without the chocolate chips (which provides a wonderful full-lemon flavor!). Kids and adults love them - perfect size as mini-muffins for pre-K snacks.
